‘Chandra, apologise to Anwar’

Richard Kamalanathan: This is in response to the remarks made by Dr Chandra Muzaffar about Anwar Ibrahim last week. The founder of Aliran was not instrumental in the formation of PKR (during the formative days there was no PKR but just Parti Keadilan).

It was difficult to talk to him. Once, at a Hindraf gathering in Sentul, he told me that my analysis of the Tamil situation was good but added: ‘You Indians must know exactly what you are asking for.

This Chandra Muzaffar @ Chandrasegaran Pillai considers himself not Indian just because he has converted. Chandra thinks he is a super-intellectual on human rights, philosophy and Islamic civilisation in Malaysia. He is not. I will blame Anwar for bringing him into the party. Chandra was the cause of the early troubles in PKR. He has no leadership qualities and had no political thinking. He was zero at politics.

  blog it
Chandra Muzaffar @ Chandrasegaran Pillai was with Anwar for 2 1/2 years, and during this time I am sure he would have known the ills perpetuated by Anwar against the Chinese and Indians. One is tempted to ask why then he joined up with him. Were his beliefs different then, or has he reformed to an extend that now he feels that Anwar will be a disaster. It will be good if he can comment on this.

His comment on Hindraf cannot go unchecked. If Hindraf was in the dark and did not know what it was asking for, does he not know that as an ex-Indian, and being well known for his academical ability, at least indicate what could be asked for. What a poor Indian; forgetting his past.

  1. WELL SAID SIR. CHANDRA ‘MANAMKETHEVAN’ MUZAFFAR SHOULD GAVE BEEN HIS FULL NAME. MAKKAL SHAKTI VALGHE !!! MAKKAL SHAKTHI VELGHA !!!. KEEP UP THE VOICE AND THE GOOD JOB.

  2. Chandra should be ashamed of himself to forget his roots so easily. As an Indian he should be voicing his concerns of the treatment of all Indians in the country. But perhaps he has just gone gobal and seeking justice for all those marginalised.

  3. Dear Bernard,

    In the global sense, he is a drop in the ocean. Nothing much he can achieve here, there are giants trying to seek justice, lets leave it to them. I don’t say, he shouldn’t get involved in those matters, he should carry on. What pains me is that he can share the Indian identity “Chandra” but feel he had been born in the wrong community. Shame on him. His marriage converted him, not ideals. If he does not come to terms with this, he will remain an Indianised Malay, never a true Malay. I hope he knows this.
